850 Tasting Notes
I’m almost positive this tea is from Handmade Teas but I can’t seem to find which one it might be. I put it in an airtight tin and never labeled it.. oops… anyways… It’s gone! I used up my two teaspoons and made a pot. It’s delicious. It has a rich malty-ness with dark chocolate undertones and a touch of sweet potato. There is a hint of caramel and a light fruitiness to it.
Woof! This tea is strong. It’s nice though. It’s strong in the gingerbread flavor and is accompanied by a smoky black base. It’s really strong actually. It tastes like a burnt gingerbread cookie with melted icing(in a good way of course..) This tea would be really good with a touch of honey and some creamer. YUMMM
Going through my tea collection today. Hopefully I can get through most of it. I want to clear out stuff I don’t love and maybe put it up for swap. This one is ok. It’s not one that really pops to me. I’m getting cinnamon and a touch of banana and the black base. It’s enjoyable but it might be time to pass this one on to someone else to enjoy.
The aroma of this tea is strong in cumin. It’s very savory, too. Almost like a baked sweet potato with spices and herbs. It’s definitely a different cup of tea. I can taste cumin, fennel, and anise. The flavor is kind of like the smell with the sweet potato thing. The base is present with a sweet smokiness. I just can’t decide if I like this tea or not..
